Apple Whisper, our 5.6% ABV English-style apple ale, is now on tap. Made with English grains, hops, and yeast, along with a healthy dose of Northwestern American apples and sea salt, this brew is perfect for the tail end of summer and the beginning of fall.

Thrilled to announce that Market Cross, our first-ever lager, will be on tap this Friday. This 5.1% London-style lager uses all English grains and hops and is an exceptionally clean beer, thanks in large part to the slow fermentation and lagering process. If you want to see what English ingredients can do in a lager, this is the beer for you! #drinkillinois #drinklocal #southernillinois #southernillinoisbeertrail
Another batch of Illinois Common in the books! Earthy sweetness, exceptional drinkability, and fun history makes this take on a Kentucky Common ale one of our best sellers. Give it a try today! #historicbeer #waterloobrews #hopskeller #drinkillinois #drinklocal

Brewing up a new batch of the High Desert Pale Ale today. Did you know that the malt in this crowd-favorite ale comes exclusively from @meccagrade, a  small family farm and maltster in Central Oregon? Not only do beers like the high desert Pale Ale help support small, innovative family farms, but it also packs a flavor that quite literally can't be found anywhere else. As with all our beers, the spent grains head off to local farmers and ranchers for re-use as animal feed.... lucky cows!
